Please note: We prioritize hiring candidates who attend in-person Hiring Events. If unable to attend an in-person event, we offer virtual options later in the hiring season. Virtual Hiring Events will take place via video over 3 hours. Attending an earlier hiring event increases an applicant’s chance of employment and we may not run virtual events if we’ve met our hiring needs. If both options are feasible for you, we encourage attending an in-person event. Also, they’re just more fun!

The cost of travel to the Backroads Leadership Training Program and In-Person Hiring events are paid by you; however, all further work-related travel is paid by Backroads, including flights to all the various regions of the world where you may be scheduled to work. During this training program, housing will be provided for you and you'll be compensated for your time. These Hiring and Training Events are subject to change based on hiring needs, therefore, we recommend that attendees purchase refundable airfare.
